'does anyone know to what extent the title "risk control" differs from "risk management"?'Where I work, 'risk control' is a small group within the risk management organization tasked with making sure that the risk measures presented to the risk managers and the senior management are correct and complete. The typical scenario they're meant to prevent is, some trader starts trading some weird contract they haven't traded before (e.g. they migh have traded vanilla swaps for years, but now they suddenly embed a call option and a provision that some credit event knocks out the swap); the backoffice systems that calculate risk blithely ignore the new terms and conditions because no one there knows how to model them; so the risk control descend upon the desk to make sure they have some kind of a spreadsheet to calculate the new risks and to amend the risk report that the risk managers see, until the backoffice risk calculators can be enhanced. So it's more operational than quantitative work. But it might mean something completely different at other firms.
